Florence Music and Culture Park – 24 Apr 2013
The project comes from the tender for the redevelopment of disused area outside the historic centre of Florence, and in particular in the vicinity of the old rail-station Leopolda, and the Royal Park of the “Cascine”. This work is part of those identified by the “Committee of Ministers for the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy” for the planning of infrastructure projects aimed at the realization and completion of major works of cultural and scientific interest for the whole country.

Artwood Showroom Florence – 7 Feb 2012
An abandoned warehouse and the need of bringing inside a new contemporary world are the reasons for a new reinterpretaion of the unused space.
“Second life” is a philosofical (but not only) reinterpretation that allows the use and the improvement of the neglected buildings inventing their new life, therefore giving them a second chance.

Florence Architecture

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Florence Building Developments, Tuscany. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed buildings in Tuscany, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across São Paulo and Brasil. The focus is on contemporary Florence buildings but information on traditional Florentine buildings is also welcome.

Florence TAV Station
As part of the creation of a new high-speed rail network, the Italian Government has instituted a major programme of station restructuring, including the creation of many new stations. The design for Florence Station provides a new facility that will connect with the citys existing Santa Maria Novella station via a new tramline.

Pitti Uomo Firenze Design
Presenting a solution for communal seating which is adaptable on many levels, the Archetto was initially designed for the Buyer’s Club at the 2011 Pitti Uomo, a large fashion trade fair held in Florence, Italy. The brief was to make the best use of a small temporary space, to give substance and luxury to what could otherwise be boring and nondescript.
